I'll bet he has more charisma than that farker Gore.
2001-08-21 12:38:43 AM  
I created the Interneeheheheheht
2001-08-21 12:39:37 AM  
How about dangstupid?

Gore never said he created the internet, Wolfie...
2001-08-21 12:44:36 AM  
I get it Wolfanoz. Pretty good. Very subtle. 9.5 out of 10.

OcterDoc - WRONG!

Gore's words in a CNN interview, as quoted by Wired News, were as

"During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet."
2001-08-21 12:59:30 AM  

Oh yeah, he said that. Not the same as "invented" which is what most people say.

I just hate myself now.
2001-08-21 01:08:27 AM  
Screw a bunch of goats. Hold on, let me rephrase that.
2001-08-21 01:14:07 AM  
hehehehe revealed!

lucky goat nuts
2001-08-21 02:36:08 AM  
Isn't initiative a synonym for a bill? And if he sponsered the bill that led to the growth of the internet (he did) then he kinda did take the initiative in creating the internet.
2001-08-21 03:14:47 AM  
I think big Al Gore is really worried too! Aren't most goats from Tenn?
2001-08-21 05:50:24 AM  
Evenin' all.
2001-08-21 08:38:41 AM  
The goat's beard is longer than Al's.....
2001-08-21 08:52:53 AM  
Better a goat than Al Sharpton. Who saw that far bastard get roasted on Crossfire? Funniest TV interview EVER!
2001-08-21 09:20:03 AM  
Now wait, don't forget about me. I will be there. No goat is going to prevent me from helping the poor people of color atain the promise of the American Dream. If I have to make a few million $s in the process, well I guess I'll just have to deal with that.
2001-08-21 11:59:04 AM  
The goat will never win...the shrub and his henchmen will just stuff the ballot box again. In politics the cheaters always win.... Politics is THE cheating game.
2001-08-21 12:05:41 PM  

("What Would Rei Do?")
2001-08-21 12:09:49 PM  
my vote goes to the goat
2001-08-21 12:23:29 PM  
oh no, not another rei / demo debate.
2001-08-21 12:26:09 PM  
Feh... I'd have to argue both sides to accomplish that.... from all indications, Rei's account got hacked, and whoever did it probably changed her password. I don't think we'll be seeing Rei arguing here any time soon... not under that account, at any rate.
2001-08-21 01:08:30 PM  
That hack of Rei's account is sad, but funny too. Now she can act like a martyr for all those causes she spews.
2001-08-21 01:25:41 PM  
funny stuff, i know who not to piss off.
2001-08-21 01:34:46 PM  
This should really challenge all those Yellow Dog Democrats out there.
2001-08-21 02:08:53 PM  
fark me in the goat ass!
2001-08-21 02:10:02 PM  
Remember there is an alternative--Pbsaurus in 2004...and besides I'm not a ruminant!

Rei's account hacked? I'll miss her.
2001-08-21 02:15:59 PM  
Wow, I bet it was one of those moral people that couldn't stand her point of view. She made many enemies in those debates, its just sad that another Farker would hack an account... I mean, thats not JelloBoy's.

Gore did not INVENT the internet, he supported bills which would allow it to grow. A common mistake that Democrate haters love to throw around is that he is delusional since he acutally believes that he created all the hardware, software, etc., needed for the net. Kind of shows you how many people believe the propaganda without putting any effort into finding the truth :/
2001-08-21 02:34:02 PM  
Whoever hacked her account is a sad sad person indeed. That's pretty mean, even if you don't agree with what she has to say.

Standing up for your beliefs does not Trolling make.
2001-08-21 02:37:35 PM  
The sad thing is that the person who hacked the account probably bubbles on and on about personal freedoms. What a farking hypocrite!
2001-08-21 02:41:47 PM  
Well, maybe she'll make a different account and still post... if she doesn't, I'll have to find someone else to argue with. :-(
2001-08-21 02:51:59 PM  
A goat? I thought it was supposed to be a donkey?


2001-08-21 03:48:40 PM  
Gus will get many many votes if he runs as a democrate.
Florida in the last election clearly demonstrated that many many people who democratic can't read, follow instructions, etc.
2001-08-21 05:17:16 PM  

by your statement, you must be a Democrat, hunh?
2001-08-21 06:10:08 PM  
what's your point?
2001-08-21 08:32:43 PM  
Wasn't Gus the donkey in that crappy Disney movie? Wait, "crappy Disney movie", that's superfluous....

Seriously, Gore didn't claim to "invent the internet".

He did claim that Love Story was based on his relationship with Tipper, that he always supported abortion rights, and that he had been lulled to sleep by his mother singing, "look for the union label."
2001-08-21 10:04:10 PM  
Apollo 13 was based on my life. Nevermind the fact that I'm 17.
2001-08-22 01:15:32 AM  
This'll kinda take the fun outta saying "The President blows goats!"
(Assuming that the goat wins...which doesn't really seem to be too far out of the realm of possibility.)
2001-08-22 06:20:55 AM  
Testing boobies:

Hmm goat...
2001-08-22 06:21:48 AM  
another test
